Salt of the Earth

"You are the salt of the earth."

It's time to get out of the salt shaker!

*Let us be ambassadors of love, faith, truth*

*Joyfully embracing our gifts*
and what God has given us to do in this life.

*Ambassadors don't hang out much behind embassy walls*
Let us be light to one another.
"No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead he puts it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house."
Luke 11:13

*Keep our own special distinctiveness*
"But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again?"
Matthew 5:13

*Stay on duty. Let us be aware that we are each a reflection of God's love*
"So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view."
2 Corinthians 5:16

Living a joy-filled life in this world is not a science
but a dance
that is lead by the Spirit.

Representing our King is the greatest privilege in the world.

*Post inspired by Rex Keener's sermon.

Amen, Maria! Tho our unsaved kids just want to believe that they are 'fine", we continue to pray and intercede for them...being a light in the darkness of their world.
